A legendary fighter with endless stamina, Taras joins the Banner Lords to rally them to victory.
Taras is an outstanding champion at frustrating and weakening your opponent whilst carrying a few punches himself. He has a unique partnership with Marichka the Unbreakable and has vowed to protect her retaliating against any enemy attacking her with his A2 which is a 100% 2 turn Stun debuff (that also deals twice the damage to high Attack enemies). His A1 places a Decrease ATK on a 50% chance but also increases all allies turn meters by 5% per critical hit (10% total per attack). Taras’s most potent skill is his A3 which will increase in damage by 15% for each buff on your team potentially increasing damage by several 100% and also extends all the buffs by 1 turn. He also packs a powerful self heal, 5% for each buff he extends whilst also restoring his MAX HP (particularly useful against Hydra or the Sand Devil).
This kit alone ranks him as a strong legendary but his passives truly make him strong. His first gradually weakens attack based opponents up to a maximum of 50% in the arena or waves and 25% against bosses whilst also place a fear on any Orc, Ogryn, Undead Horde or Demonspawn champion before a sword is even raised. You’ll want to defeat Taras quickly if you face him but his second passive counters this by reducing ALL skill damage (not debuffs!) by 50% a huge damage reduction. This does come at a cost to his MAX HP which will get decreased heavily but bring plenty of his buffs and his heal on the A3 will make him difficult to take down.
A very complex and packed champion but S tier for sure.
